CRI’s activity in China prompted a correspondent from Swedish public radio station - Sveriges Radio - to visit the George Olah Renewable Methanol Plant and conduct an interview with CRI’s Director of Business Development Benedikt Stefánsson.  Two separate segments were aired, one with special emphasis on green technology development in China and the other on the concept of carbon capture and utilisation in general.
